Textile Conservation

TRIUMPH OF JUSTICE tapestry positioned on one of the Lab's 2 tapestry "frames". Under the 3-beam frame (also sometimes called a "loom" but isnt'!) is one of the lab's low, wheeled tables. To work on the tapestry, the table is removed and the conservator sits in front of either of the lower beams at either side. With the center beam raised higher than the other two, the tapestry is supported at an angle for easier visibility and access to both front and reverse. With the wheeled table in position, the tapestry is ready to be released from the frame.
